This recipe is totally new to me, i have never heard about it until a viewer asked for the recipe. When i searched for this recipe, i came to know that this recipe is my favourite..I have tried it from haldirams namkeens range. I love them so much.I love their unique spice mix and the flavour of chat masala in this.
So yesterday i asked hubby to take me to supermarket. I looked for the ingredients list in their packet and took a note of it..I also found this cute little bucket in their utensil section. I got one and decided to take picture in them..
I made this today and it came out pretty good. I love to add lots of nuts and raisans in this, which makes this more tasty..I hope you will love this and let me know how it turned out for you..
